Take over Isadora
The pep rally has begun!! Well…it started three months ago to be exact. You may remember Yin mention Hoodie Allen in earlier posts of Eargasms this year, but I feel it’s time to let this fresh hood rat shine. Straight from the empire state that is New York, this young 21-year-old graduate uses his nerdy musical talents and educational background to produce a musical genre that is blowing up on the scene. Often compared to Chiddy Bang, Mac Miller, and even Kanye West (the early years of The College Dropout album), Hoodie is quickly becoming one of the artists to watch for the year 2011.
Using samples from some of the UK’s top leading artists, singles like “You are not a Robot” and “Words of Wisdom” from the debut album Pep Rally have reached unexpected heights within weeks of their release on The Hype Machine. Just imagine a handful of lyrical connotations that would make yo momma laugh (yeah, I went there) and a rhythmic rapping style that stuns you before you can even think of what just happened. You’ve pretty much envisioned his album.
He may be blogged about like crazy on the blogosphere, but you can’t help to like what this guy has to offer. After downloading his album and hearing the first track, I can truly say you will not be disappointed and will constantly have the album on replay.
